Which version of openldap did you use?  I built openldap24-server with
its default settings, and it starts up just fine.

This is because bdb5 tries to redefine gcc's builtin atomic functions,
which are also supported by clang (this is a feature :).  It is rather
dumb to use names starting with underscores for this, since they are

The same problem occurs if you compile with gcc 4.7 or higher, albeit
gcc apparently doesn't think this is serious enough to bail out:

  ./libtool --mode=compile /usr/local/bin/gcc47 -c -I. -I./../src  -D_THREAD_SAFE -O2 -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing  ../src/mutex/mut_tas.c
  libtool: compile:  /usr/local/bin/gcc47 -c -I. -I./../src -D_THREAD_SAFE -O2 -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing ../src/mutex/mut_tas.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/mut_tas.o
  In file included from ./../src/dbinc/mutex_int.h:12:0,
		   from ./../src/dbinc/mutex.h:15,
		   from ./db_int.h:1089,
		   from ../src/mutex/mut_tas.c:11:
  ./../src/dbinc/atomic.h:179:19: warning: conflicting types for built-in function '__atomic_compare_exchange' [enabled by default]

In any case, attached is a simple patch to fix the db5 port.
